Next week, over 1,500 rowers will travel from all over the UK and from across the world to compete in the prestigious Henley Women’s Regatta. And, this year, we’re proud to announce that HWR has teamed up Crewroom to supply the official merchandise range.
Held on the rowing world’s iconic stretch of the River Thames, HWR offers exciting side-by-side match racing for a wide range of competitors, from juniors to university and club to elite level.
The race, now in its third decade, was established through the sheer persistence of the founders – Rosie Mayglothing and Christine Aistrop – who wanted to bring competitive rowing to Henley in the first race of its kind for women. Finally given permission by the Stewards at Henley, the first race took place in 1988 and was at the forefront of promoting competitive women’s rowing in the UK. The regatta has since gone from strength to strength and is now one of the most prestigious women’s rowing events on the world stage.
To commemorate this premier women's event we’ve created a range of beautifully designed products, crafted with function, style and the environment in mind.
The new range takes some retro inspiration from the heritage of HWR, founded in 1988 and the same year as the Seoul Olympics where the style of athlete kit incorporated large applique logos and bold prints. Combined with environmentally conscious fabrics and manufacturing, you'll find a perfect memento or gift in the HWR range.
